High-Level Leadership Meeting on Addressing Inequalities

As part of the Post-2015 Development Agenda Global Thematic Consultations, this High-Level Leadership Meeting will review the final report and findings of the Global Consultation on Inequalities with the aim of developing a statement and recommendations. The first day of the Meeting will be a Public Dialogue and will address: why inequalities matter and the impacts of inequalities on both societies and individuals; the different dimensions of inequality, synergies between them and the common factors that drive and sustain them; and effective ways forward to address inequalities, and the factors that drive them, as part of a new development agenda, as well as how to assess and measure progress on reducing inequalities. The event will be live-streamed via the consultation’s website on 18 February 2013, from 9 am-3 pm Central European Time (CEE). The event will be interactive, and online participants are invited to submit questions to the panel in advance using the Twitter hashtag #inequalities2015. Questions may also be submitted by email to inequalities@worldwewant2015.org, before the deadline of Friday, 15 February 2013. Organizers highly encourage participants to submit questions early.
